Exactly - from the relatively cheap and boring looking case that this was (and that I see a lot of on here) I have added some nice touches to it. This case was the first thing I bought out of all the parts and I wanted to keep that for memories of my first build and when the time is right and I want to upgrade then the next one will be a proper modded case BUT still with the expensive hardware that is in this. Each to their own like you said but I like this and so do my mates

I loved my zalman z11, but as you want to upgrade youll end up hating it lol

if you want to mod further id suggest sleeving the cables in silver/white UV sleeve or paracord, painting the plastics silver or grey to match the writing.

those rear usb3 cables are an absolute nightmare, I ripped them out or get an adapter like some and have them inside.

and some better cable management.

The next case is going to be the Cosmos 2 with a modded side window - you just cant beat that but it's £300+ which is a lot for a case!

Cable management in this case is a joke and it's about the best I can do with all the wires for the LED's etc

I don't do minimalistic stuff - I am OTT haha

if youre OTT id suggest never ever go custom on watercooling, its addictive and urm addictive.

Hahaha! And expensive although that doesn't bother me - I work hard!

The only thing with watercooling is I really don't see the point unless you are absolutley rediculously overclocking everything. Other than that it's just for aesthetics. I see some people with a 3.2GHZ AMD CPU bog standard and a standard low end GPU but they have a watercooling kit or a H100i or something similar. I'm like what the heck??! Even my beast is OC'd to 4.5GHZ with an OC'd GTX 780 and the thing still idles below 30 degrees with my Noctua which is one of the best out there and on full load it tops out at 60 -65 degrees.
